Historical Traveller Reviews of Royal Plaza Hotel
excellent hotel and location, very friendly stafffrom Reisefuedli
We thank you for your loyalty with the Royal Plaza Montreux and we are already looking forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back very soon ! The Management
Nice hotel especially if you get a lake front roomfrom JenM72
Rooms are neat and clean and bed was very comfortable with nice pillows, and really nice soft towels in the bathroom.
Restaurant food was also nice.
Hotel is about a 10 minute walk (downhill) from the station, and right on the lake front.
Staff were friendly.
Only downside, was that it was after the jazz festival, so there was scaffolding everywhere, of which some blocked an otherwise excellent view of the lake!
Great hotelfrom Mikelibra
Hotel could use some renovations especially in the bathrooms.
Several good restaurants in the hotel, excellent for walks along the lake, 5 minutes from the SBB Rail Station and 5 minutes from the Lake Geneva boat terminal.
Watch out for the various music festivals as they impact, negatively, the peace and tranquility that normal exists in Montreux including the week before and after the events.
Great Location but Small Roomsfrom Torchy
Nice hotel with a beautiful viewfrom sushi1
My only two slight issues with the hotel were the pool was very cold for a heated pool and the hotel is a bit sneaky. For example a water bottle left on your shelf invites you to enjoy it but then warns you will be charged if you do so! For a five star hotel that charges quite a bit I thought that was a bit cheap!
Overall though nice hotel but if you stay pay for the lake view it is just beautiful.
Great after 5 room changesfrom Havanah
The hotel apparently was full before we arrived and they offered non smoking rooms to smokers. Rooms smelt of smoke and for non smokers it was noticeable. The Duty Manager was an absolute disgrace with an appalling attitude and I hope no one else visiting the hotel has to go through what we did.
After these problems, we didn't bother to use any of the hotel restaurants. We would stay there again but ony if we were guaranteed that standard of room.
Please please visit the Palais Oriental restaurant about 10 mins walk from the hotel. Absolutely fantastic.
We definitely will visit Montreux again.

Lakefront with stunning viewsfrom thielees
5* holiday in a 5* hotelfrom ennis25
This hotel is right on Lake Geneva and you get the most amazing views of the lake and the mountains. But make sure when you book and check in that you get one of the rooms facing the lake - or you may find yourself in a room overlooking the road at the back. I have posted photos of how lovely the lake and mountains look in winter.
The hotel has a high star rating (5 stars) but I am not sure why. It is a perfectly good hotel - for business and the conference I was at. The rooms are small but comfortable and well equipped for the traveller who is not going to spend much time in the room - and has large desk to work at. Bathroom is pleasant but small. The hotel has wireless broadband but it is costly. The place is not that soundproof as you could hear all the noise as people came and went from their rooms. The rooms were very hot from the winter heating.
The food in the hotel is good and reliable with lots of salads - but not stunning. I feel the hotel is more four star.
Personally, it is not a hotel I would like to stay at for pleasure but for work it was brilliant.
Top Local Tips for Montreux
Trains discount Get a multi-day travel pass for the trains to make some big savings. Exploring the region by train is a great experience in itself, due to the stunning views - ask at the train station in Montreux, the staff are incredibly helpful.
Riviera card This card was given to me by a hotel for the whole duration of my stay. Really a value as you can use the bus for free and get 50% discounts to most of the local museums, like Chatau de Chillion, which is a must to visit if you are in Montreux
Lived in Montreux I very briefly lived in Montreux years ago and the city has changed as all cities do. However, it you want a nice relaxing holiday, I would recommend Vevey over Montreux.
